If you've only just joined, you won't be able to post pictures until you're not under moderation... I think.

If your file is larger than PHP's (the language that the forum software is written in) max upload limit, then it will throw an exception. If displaying exceptions is disabled in the server's configuration (as is standard practice for production servers), you will see a blank page. This could explain what you're seeing.

its probably rejected because too big, as said above

I resize to large, which gives around the allowed 90k
then it enlarge big enough for details, when clicking on it

It's OLD. Notice the use of binaural wording and independence of the 2 channels. I'm guessing the rectifier is a 5Y3 and that it uses single ended (SE) 6V6 O/P tubes. Please provide a complete list of the tube complement.

FWIW, I'd salvage the "iron" and tubes for recycling into a new build. All of the electrolytic caps. are "shot". Carbon composition resistors drift in value and go noisy over time, which makes them poor salvage candidates. Wirewound resistors in good physical condition are candidates for salvage.

BTW, if in good condition, the "magic eye" indicator tubes are of value to radio restorers.

That front panel is just too cool!

I would salvage it "in-place"; i.e. build a new amp into the existing chassis using the existing iron and whatever else is in good condition. Treat it like an old console amp and rebuild it better, faster...
